Communication is the sending and receiving of information through symbols, signs or behaviour. Good communication is vital for friendship to thrive increasing our sense of purpose and belonging to provide happiness and reduced stress.
The most used communication form is a combination of verbal and non-verbal expressive communication but not everyone is able to communicate in this way and rely on non-verbal techniques using sign, symbols, and expression.
Visual Communication Consultants, based in Broome with clients across the Kimberley and Pilbara region, is a catalyst for communication where we seek to increase the ability for all to communicate through interpreting, education, and awareness. Over many years of understanding our clients we have witnessed the benefit of friendship to relieve stress, provide comfort and joy, and prevent loneliness and isolation. We have established numerous friendship groups, in an inclusive and safe environment, that uses activities to generate fun and laughter that allow for friendships to flourish.
During the Easter holidays we conducted a trial holiday program which bought together numerous clients of all ages and abilities to participate in some fantastic local activities.
